HIGHWAY SURVEYOR'S REPORT 



To the Selectmen of the Town ofAndover : 

Gentlemen : I herewith present my report on High- 
ways and Bridges. 

We began work on Walnut avenue March 28th, grading 
it beyond James Grosvenor's residence, and then the entire 
length of Maple avenue. Shawsheen road was graded on 
the hill near Peter D. Smith's residence. 

We then macadamized Salem street beginning where we 
left off last year at the Highland road, putting in 1000 feet, 
thus connecting it with South Main street. 

May 8th we commenced on Lowell road in Frye Tillage 
near the Shawsheen River bridge and graveled as far as 
Warren Mooar's. We repaired the road from West Centre 
fountain to George Phelps'. Four hundred feet of Telford 
road was put in on Poor street, south of Lowell road. We 
graveled Whittier street, Summer street, from Elm street 
nearly to Mr. Welch's house. 

We repaired several hundred feet on Missionary Lane, 
also the same on Highland Road. We graded Chestnut 
street from Main to Bartlet street, also about 200 feet near 
Warren Berry's. We graveled Porter street from the house 
of Henry Flint around the corner near the Weld place as 
far as the gate at Spring Grove cemetery. Also several 
hundred feet near the Stickney place. 

A catch basin was put in on River street, Ballardvale, and 
piped through the company's land to the river, this being 
the only way the street could be drained. Two catch basins 
were put in on Morton street between Main and School 
street and the street and sidewalk were repaired. 

About 700 feet were graveled on Lovejoy road, 1000 feet 
on Greenwood road and several hundred feet on Lowell 
street near the Carruth farm. The ledge was blown out of 



43 

the Cutler road and the road repaired between Daniel 
Murphy's and Lowell street. Phillips street was repaired 
and also a few hundred feet on Woburn street. 

We raised the sidewalk on Poor street, Frye Village, and 
repaired the one on Lowell road near Mr. Lindsay's. A 
sidewalk was built the entire length of the west side of Pine 
street. The sidewalk on Elm street from Whittier to Sum- 
mer street was taken down to grade. A new sidewalk was 
built on Whittier street from Summer to Elm street. 
Several old walks have been repaired. The gutter in front 
of Wm. Wood's in Frye Village has been paved at his ex- 
pense ; also in front of Village hall in Abbott Village. 

Concrete sidewalks have been laid under betterment act in 
the following places : in Frye Village, 400 feet on Main 
street, north of Harding street in front of Jewett's, the 
gutter paved the same distance, the entire length of Brooks 
street, on School street, from Abbot street to the gate of 
Abbot Academy, on Salem street and on Highland road. 
The concrete sidewalks have been repaired on Elm, Essex, 
Chestnut, Central, Main and Salem streets. A concrete 
crossing was put in on High street and those on Main street 
were repaired. Concrete driveways were laid as follows: 
one on Chestnut street, two on Central street, one on Salem 
street. 

The street from Tyer Rubber Co., to the square has been 
macadamized. Two hundred feet of macadam was laid on 
Main street, below the Railroad bridge. Four hundred feet 
was placed on Essex street near the Railroad station. 
Twenty-two hundred leet was laid on Lowell street from 
Harry Abbott's to the corner at Greenwood road in West 
Parish. 

Gutters and catch basins have been thoroughly cleaned. 
The road machine was not used in the spring on account of 
the dry season. 

Work has been done for the Boston and Maine, for the 



44 

Village Improvement society, gravel sold and the roller let, 
for which the Town Treasurer has received the money. 

The streets in Ballardvale have been kept in good con- 
dition by the Town team kept there. 

The balance of the appropriation left from last year for 
the new street between Elm street and Walnut avenue has 
been expended on the street and sidewalk.

OVERSEERS OF THE POOR 



Our Almshouse is under the efficient management of Mr. 
and Mrs. George L. Burnham, and we feel that the aged and 
infirm who find it necessary to spend their declining years 
there, are fortunate in having so comfortable a home, and 
in being looked after by these most competent and kind 
hearted people. The inmates are all well fed and clothed, 
and have every comfort consistent with their situation. 

Our town's people are invited to visit this home and see 
for themselves how the poor people there are cared for. 

While the inmates of the house are so comfortably pro- 
vided for, the accommodations for the cattle are not up to 
what they should be. If our town intends to carry on the 
farm, a new barn, one that will be a credit to the town, is 
very much needed as it would be a waste of money to at- 
tempt to repair the old one.

1 also recommend the installing of a storage battery in 

place of the battery we now have. It would be a saving of 

about $150 per year.

TREE WARDEN'S REPORT 



During the past year we have trimmed out some fifteen 
miles of road, by removing the bushes in the outlying dis- 
tricts. We were unable to cover the town as efficiently as 
we would liked to have done, as the recent law enacted by 
the Legislature in May, 1905 relative to the destruction of 
the Gypsy and Brown tail Moth, necessitated a larger expen- 
diture of money than was anticipated. However the Brown 
tail Moth nests have been removed from all the trees and 
undergrowth on the highway from boundary to boundary. 
We have now within our town a far worse enemy to fight 
than the Brown tail Moth (namely the Gypsy moth) which 
will require the united effort of every property holder to keep 
in check. It has already been found in quite a number of 
places in Andover, in at least forty places already, which 
have all been carefully looked over and all egg clusters de- 
stroyed. The Gypsy moth question will have to be carried 
on uniformly from now and will require a large expenditure 
of money, as all trees in the immediate vicinity of the in- 
fested tree will have to be burlapped and the undergrowth 
cut out in order that we may keep it in check. In order 
that the voters may have some idea as to how wide a range 
the Gypsy Moth has gained I name the following territory : 
Main street, Chestnut, Elm, High, Morton, Central, Summer, 
Salem, Highland Road, Porter, Poor, Bartlet, Florence, 
Hidden Road, Sunset Rock Road, Shawsheen Road and 
Fosters Pond. And in closing my report I would ask that 
all property owners will make an effort to rid their trees of 
these pests at once. We are already at work on private 
property and intend to clean up all places not already 
cleaned up, at once. And I would ask that the sum of 
twenty-five hundred dollars ($2500) be appropriated that 
the work may be carried on at once and in that way keep 
the Gypsy and Brown tail Moth in check. 

J. H. PLAYDON, 

Tree Warden. 



REPORT OF INSPECTOR OF MILK 



To the Honorable Board of Selectmen — 

Gentlemen : I herewith submit my annual report for the 
year ending December 31, 1905. 

There were twenty-eight licenses granted for the sale of 
milk during the year. Four of these were issued for the sale 
of milk in stores, one for the sale of skimmed milk, two for 
the sale of cream and twenty-one pedlers. Samples of milk 
from the various dealers have been tested from time to time 
and have uniformly been above the standard. It is gratify- 
ing to report that there have been few complaints and the 
dealers have always signified a willingness to do their part 
in keeping up the excellent standard of milk that is sold in 
town. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GEORGE E. HUSSEY, 

Inspector of Milk. 



SPRING GROVE CEMETERY 



The Cemetery Committee herewith submit their annual 
report for the year 1905 : 

The usual work needed for the care of the cemetery has 
been carefully executed and the new plot graded and made 
ready for interments. During the year the storage building 
in the cemetery was destroyed by an incendiary fire and a 
larger appropriation than usual will be needed to replace the 
same and carry on the work necessary for the care of the 
grounds. It is the desire of the committee that the town 
water might be made available for use in the cemetery, as 
many lot owners have requested that such an arrangement 
might be made. Your committee have also been requested 
to ask that the sidewalk, on the road running from Mr. 
Hemen way's to the cemetery, be placed in proper condition 
for public travel. Some years ago this walk was built, but of 
late has been in a miserable condition and would require but 
a small expenditure to place it in proper condition. 

Your committee request that an appropriation of $1000, 
with the proceeds of the sale of lots, be made for the ensuing 
year.

PARK COMMISSIONERS' REPORT 



The work carried on under the direction of the Park Com- 
missioners during the past year has centered round the 
Common, although some expense has been incurred in the 
care of Carmel Woods and maintenance of " The Boulders." 

At the Common real progress has been made toward the 
completion of the full plan as set forth several years ago by 
the landscape architect. Many more shrubs have been set 
out, new paths constructed and a very ornamental, rough 
stone bridge now connects the two sections of the plot. 

All of the work has been done here in a most thorough 
manner and a continuance of the present policy will in due 
time give to the town a beautiful park. The commissioners 
will recommend within the next year or so the closing of the 
street between the Common and the public school grounds, 
so far as it exists as a public highway, the plan for the com- 
pletion of the full scheme providing for a park avenue which 
will care for all the travel while making the grounds more 
attractive. 

As the plans develop for the lay out of this desirable cen- 
tral park, your commissioners believe that the public becomes 
more anxious for an early completion of the entire work. 
Certainly the appropriation this year should be no less than 
that of last year and our citizens should seriously consider 
the wisdom of an appropriation for the completion of the 
entire work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN N. COLE, 
MYRON E. GUTTERSON, 
T. FRANK PRATT, 

Park Commissioners.

REPORT OF 

TAX COLLECTOR 



To the Board of Assessors : 

With this I hand you my report for the year ending Jan. 
9, 1906. 

While the results attained have not been all that I had 
hoped for, yet some gain has been made and the accounts for 
the past ten years, over which the uncollected taxes ex- 
tended, have been put into better shape, and some errors 
corrected, so that the coming year should show a still greater 
improvement. A careful going over of all these accounts 
for ten years, which seemed necessary before the Collector 
could feel that he was proceeding on a sure footing, has re- 
quired much time and correspondence and delayed some- 
what the actual work of collection. 

The assessors, after consulting the town counsel, abated 
the amounts found in the accompanying report for the years 
1896 to 1901. They comprise almost entirely the poll taxes 
of deceased and poor persons, and of others who have gone 
away, also a small amount of personal property and real es- 
tate, which was not available, the stock or property having 
been sold out or changed hands, and the original owners 
having left town.

MEMORIAL HALL 



THIRTY-THIRD ANNUAL REPORT 
OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES 



The annexed statistical reports of the Treasurer, Li- 
brarian and Custodian of the Cornell Art Gallery, with the 
full list of accessions, will serve to show the varied service 
of the Library during the past year — in the constant use of 
its Reading Room and Reference Room, the enjoyment of 
the Art Collection, both by adults and children, and the cir- 
culation of books through individual drawers, in the public 
schools and by carrier in the outlying districts. 

In addition, the beginning of a special collection of books 
has been made by an appropriation from the Lieut. Gover- 
nor Phillips Fund, established by the founder of Phillips 
Academy in his life-time. As this can, by the terms of the 
gift, be used only for the purchase of books of a religious 
character it has been thought wise to devote it in part to 
works which will be of practical use in the current mission- 
ary and Sunday school studies in the different churches of 
the town. These volumes are distinguished by a special 
book-plate and by "P" in the accompanying accession list, 
and will be so indicated in the bulletins published from time 
to time in the Townsman. They may be found in a special 
case in the Cornell Reference Room, but may be drawn like 
any other books, with the exception of a few works of refer- 
ence. 

The Trustees make grateful record of the continued gen- 
erosity of the Smith family of Andover, by whom in large 
part the Memorial Hall was originally founded, in the recent 
bequest of Mrs. Helen G. Coburn, of Boston, daughter of the 



107 

late Mr. John Smith. Mrs. Coburn in her lifetime had de- 
frayed the expense of a new printed catalogue, and the 
present addition to the endowment funds, made by her will, 
is twenty-five thousand dollars. It is expected that the in- 
creased income from this source, when received, will provide 
for making needed improvements in the equipment and ad- 
ministration of the Library. 

Mention should be made also of a special private gift 
which has been expended for constructing a toilet room for 
the use of the patrons of the Library, and for the binding of 
sixteen volumes of the Boston Evening Transcript. 

By vote of the Trustees, families not already supplied with 
the printed catalogue may secure a copy by application to 
the Librarian. The patrons of the Library are again re- 
minded of their privilege in suggesting books for purchase, 
as funds may allow, the titles to be placed on slips furnished 
by the Librarian.

Report of the Custodian of the Cornell Art Gallery 

To the Trustees of the Memorial Hall Library : 

Gentlemen : — The Cornell Art Gallery has been visited 
during the year by 3707 persons ; of this number 1522 were 
adults and 2185 were children, an average daily attendance 
of 36. 

Since the vote of the Trustees to admit children to the 
Gallery only on Friday and Saturday afternoons, the attend- 
ance of adults on Saturday evening has materially increased, 
and there is manifest appreciation of the quiet of the room. 

The only addition to our Collection during the year has 
been by a gift of stereoscopic views from Mrs. H. L. Blake, 
which are much used. Many of the stereographs have been 
loaned to the teachers in the public schools to illustrate the 
study of Geography. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JULIA E. TWICHELL.

REPORT OF 

BOARD OF PUBLIC WORKS 



To the Citizens of Andover : 

Your Board of Public Works submit their seventh annual 
report, embracing the ninth of the Sewer and the seventeenth 
of the Water Systems for the year ending January 10th, 
1906. 

SEWER DEPARTMENT 

About 48 feet of pipe on Whittier street is all the addition 
to the sewer this year. No extensive repairs have been re- 
quired and no trouble has developed in the usual working of 
the system. 

The filter beds with the usual repairs that are common 
each spring are in very good condition. Thus far this man- 
ner of disposing of the sewage has been very satisfactory and 
as it now appears it will not be very long before all inland 
cities and towns will have to adopt some process of Alteration 
of the sewage or dispose of it by some other method than 
running it directly to some flowing stream to be carried 
away and distributed along the banks. Should this be the 
case, this town will be all right without any change or extra 
expense. 

The bonded debt is now 170,000 and the sinking fund 
$3,212.33 leaving a net bonded debt of $66,787.67. Since 
the first year the town has not made any appropriation di- 
rectly for either the sinking fund or for maintenance, or in- 
terest, all of these thus far coming from sewer assessments. 
But as the sinking fund is now very small, it having been 
required from time to time to redeem bonds as they matured, 
it will be necessary for the town for several years to come, 
to appropriate money for this fund as many of the bonds 



mature in a few years and the receipts from assessments will 
not be sufficient for their redemption. Enough, however, 
will be received for all ordinary expenses, for a few years 
more.

$3426.99

1803.51

$7228.82 



Gallons of water pumped, 164,150,878. 

Cost per million gallons figured on pumping expenses, $20.87. 

Cost per million gallons figured on total maintenance, S44.03. 

Receipts from water rates, $12,409.79. 

Received per million gallons pumped, $75.60. 

Additions to street lines have been made on Pine, Corbett 
and Reservation streets. 

The receipts from water rates show a steady increase. 
All water rates due to October 1st, 1905 have been collected. 

The water has been exceptionally good which is very grati- 
fying as during the past year there has been more than usual 
trouble with the water in the different systems in the state. 



A number of applications for a supply of water have been 
received which if their requests are granted will necessitate 
the laying of considerable street pipe. 

While this Board has always favored granting to the citi- 
zens all privileges consistent with the welfare of the system 
and the town, it is a question whether it is good policy for 
the town to lay pipe on streets where there is little or no 
prospects of the line ever being utilized to any extent beyond 
what is visible at the time. Whenever a special line of pipe 
is laid and only 4 per cent, collected on the cost of the line 
the town receives nothing whatever for the water furnished, 
and all expenses for pumping the extra water and the care 
and maintenance of the system with this extra expense must 
of necessity come from some other source. 

The repairs on the coal shed at the station have been of a 
permanent nature, as few as possible and the whole building 
is now in many respects in much better condition than 
formerly. 

The station has had no repairs and none were needed. 
The grounds about the station are not in harmony with the 
building, the amount of money available for several years 
has not justified the Board in expending much to improve 
the surroundings. 

Sometime it is hoped that funds will be provided and the 
grounds improved and made more attractive. 

A new boiler will be required to replace the old one which 
has outlived its usefulness, and is now or soon will be unsafe 
for the duty required. 

George E. Hussey who has very acceptably filled the po- 
sition of clerk and collector for the past ten years, resigned 
at the close of the year and Frank L. Cole was elected to the 
position. 

Yery respectfully, 

JOHN L. SMITH ^

A stand pipe for street sprinkling was erected at the corner 
of Elm and Whittier streets. 

Thirty-six meters were set and two discontinued during 
the year. 

Total number of meters in use, 791. 

The rear wall of the coal shed has been rebuilt with heavy 
stone work, the ground filled to a level with the door sills 
and the floor concreted. A covered run has been built be- 
tween the coal shed and boiler room. 

On the inspection of No. 2 boiler in October, the Hartford 
Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Co., notified us that 
it would be better to replace this boiler with a new one 
rather than make the expensive repairs which would be re- 
quired to make the boiler reasonably safe at the pressure 
used. 

Sewers 

The only common sewer laid during 1905 was 48 feet on 
Whittier street. 

Twenty-seven applications for house connections were re- 
ceived and twenty-eight connections laid during 1905. 

Total number of applications to date, 465. 

Total number of connections in service, 447. 

Length of connections laid during 1905, 1727 feet. 

Total length of connections in service, 28055. 

Storm sewers were laid for the Street department on River 
and Morton streets, and a private sewer was laid for Smith 
& Dove Mfg. Co. 

Foundations and arch for small bridge was also built by 
this department for the Park Commissioners. 

The operation of the sewer system has been very satisfac- 
tory, one stoppage has occurred on a house connection. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN B. SMITH.
